honey garlic chicken skillet

Howdy friends!

I don’t know about y’all, but my spring break was too good to come back to everyday life and routine! My week off was much needed, and I’m already ready for the weekend. I will say, I’m glad to be able to eat healthier.. I ate good this past week, but it may have been a little too good! I’ll definitely be making more trips to the gym in the next couple of weeks to get back where I started.

Lately I’ve been wanting some kind of Asian inspired dish, so I searched for something delicious and healthy and I definitely found it! This week I made a honey garlic skillet, complete with chicken, cauli-rice, and broccoli!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 lb of chicken breasts
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 bag of frozen broccoli (or fresh broccoli, either way!)
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbs of chili garlic sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of ground ginger

What you’ll do:

  • You can cook your chicken however you prefer; I’m a big fan of baking my chicken. I set my oven to 350 degrees and then bake the chicken for about 20 minutes.
  • As for the cauliflower, you can do that a couple different ways. Putting it in a food processor is the easiest way I’ve found, though if you don’t have access to one, grating it will work just as well. (It may take a little longer but it’s still good)
  • Once that’s done, add that and the broccoli into a big pan and turn the heat to medium-high.
  • While that is cooking, start adding the ingredients for the honey garlic sauce. Add the soy sauce, honey, chili garlic, garlic cloves, and ginger into a bowl, and mix well.
  • Once the cauli-rice and broccoli have been heated enough, add the sauce and let simmer.
  • The chicken should be ready by then, and you can cut it up and add to the pan with the rest of the food.
  • Stir it in well, and then let it simmer for a little bit.
  • After that, turn off the heat and enjoy!

This was definitely a good one, the sweet and savory flavors worked so well together!  I added a veggie egg roll on the side, just to keep myself from overeating (it’s very easy to do with this dish). I will definitely keep this one going. All in all, it costs about $15 if you don’t have all the ingredients, but cheaper if you do! Plus, it makes a lot of leftovers so meal prepping is a breeze. I’ve got leftovers for days (literally)!

Hope y’all enjoy!!

Until next time friends!
